Our discussion of Harry Potter continues in episode 52, covering books five through seven as well as the recently released “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.” Are the beasts truly fantastic? Did we forgive Snape and Malfoy? How do we feel about the future of the franchise? Reminder: we’ll be donating 100 percent of the money we make from Patreon and merch sales in December to a charity or multiple charities to be decided soon. We chose December to be sure everybody would have the chance to participate since November is always half over. Don’t worry, we’ll be reminding you frequently!
Warning: There are some minor cusses, but nothing that would get us banned on network TV.
